“Where rationalism holds to credo quia intelligo (I believe because I understand), and fideism to credo quia absurdum est (I believe because it is absurd), classical evangelical orthodoxy subscribes to the formula of Augustine and Anselm, credo ut intelligam (I believe in order to understand)” (Faith, Learning, and Christian Higher Education, pp. 36-37).
In the words of Rev. Stephen Tong, “faith is the return of the prodigal reason to the Truth.”
